New contestants have entered the fray in the battle for Jerusalem! The Princess and The Pig have embarked for the holy lands bringing swords, spears, maces and more in a journey that is set to disrupt the balance of power in the desert. Fight your way through a new skirmish trail with seven deadly scenarios to tackle, including three new maps. Old faces such as The Wolf, Richard the Lionheart and Saladin make a return, smarter and more strategic than before. While these new rivals will sometimes aid you in battle, they won’t hold back when it comes to the gruesomely difficult finale. The Princess and The Pig DLC resurrects a central antagonist from the original Stronghold in a brand new Crusader Trail, while also introducing a new character in the form of the noble Princess. The first piece of downloadable content available for Stronghold Crusader 2, The Princess and The Pig adds seven missions, two AI opponents, 10 achievements and new castle designs unique to these characters.
Starved by an abusive father, it wasn’t long before The Pig joined up with a group of bandits in the English backcountry. After proving himself in early raids The Pig quickly rose to lead this band of brigands, claiming the finest spoils as his own. He soon took to overeating, becoming overweight and using this newfound size to intimidate his enemies. Despite his chequered past The Wolf eventually managed to secure The Pig a Dukedom, after which he became The Wolf’s personal enforcer. Although the two work as a team, The Pig fears The Wolf as much as he did his own father. While The Pig was raised by bandits, The Princess was born into privilege. Her position in the royal court meant The Princess spent her entire life with nothing to prove. Fortunately growing up in high society has left The Princess with a powerful sense of self-reliance and confidence, sorely lacking in other Lords and Ladies. After fighting for her place in the royal court, The Princess is now determined to prove her worth as a commander on the battlefield. This drive makes her every bit as fearless and proud a military leader as any male heir to the throne.
